Orecchiette pasta is traditionally from Apulia, and loved all over Italy and the world! Traditionally prepared with "cime di rapa" (broccoli rabe) are delicious with any vegetable, like broccoli kale and cherry tomatoes, and whit whatever your fantasy thinks about! The word "orecchiette" means "little ears" and, obviously, the name derives from the shape. Orecchiette are said to have become popular in Puglia between the 12th and 13th century. So, this is definitely a pasta of ancient origin. Sgambaro is one of our favorite brands and it encompasses high quality in both its product and its values. All the wheat use is 100% Italian and on top of that, the factory in Veneto is powered with 100% green energy and also has adopted carbon-offsetting initiatives.
